2022 Luke Lambert Crudo Rosé14360
WINEMAKER: Luke Lambert
REGION: Yarra Valley, VIC
Like last year’s release, this is 100% Shiraz sourced from 15-year-old vines on a granite-rich northeast-facing slope in the Denton vineyard. The fruit was whole-bunch pressed and wild fermented in tank. The wine matured in a 4000-litre French oak foudre before being bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur.
A more restrained and subtle rendition than the 2021, this is vibrant, crunchy and linear. It’s crammed with great depth, summer berries, stony notes and a moreish, grippy texture. The finish is bone-dry and invigorating, driven by tangy acidity and a savoury edge. Bullseye.
